Welcome to ASKHULT, a village consisting of four houses dating back to 1700 hundred.
Picture from Lanstyrelsen.
An idyllic walk from the parking area. Stone walls on each side.

When you reach the village, you are received in a very informal way by people dressed in period clothes..

Massive granite blocks cover the court yards.

Poor people never painted their houses (too expensive). So the houses remain grey.

There is a charming lake nearby.

If you walk up these granite steps, you can have coffee or or ice-cream and home-baked cakes in one of the houses...

...whilst looking out these windows.
if you wish, you can have a picnic on the grounds nearby one of the many stone walls.
Picnic tables are available.
